    We have a baby who is turning 2 August 2nd. We are looking to come down the last two weeks of June. We are looking into daycare options for him that is outside of our room. Can you provide me with any ideas or resources?

    Heigh-ho, Marcus!

    It's off to Walt Disney World you go! In just a few short months, you'll be on your way to the Most Magical Place on Earth. You must be so excited to share the experience with your little one.

    While your Mouseketeer's first visit will be exciting, I completely understand wanting to enjoy toddler-free time in the theme parks. Walt Disney World doesn't provide its own childcare services or an onsite daycare, but I will mention a local company, Kid's Nite Out, that offers in-room babysitting services for children of all ages. Additionally, you can hire a parent's helper through Kid's Nite Out to accompany your family to the theme parks. When my children were infants and toddlers, we almost always traveled with an aunt, uncle, or grandparent to have an extra set of hands during the day.

    Once your little guy celebrates a few more birthdays, he can join fellow young adventurers at Camp Dolphin, a paid, drop-off kids' club for children ages 5-12 at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel. The Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort offers a similar program (albeit limited to and complimentary for guests of this resort) for children ages 4-10 called Kids For All Seasons.

    I hope this is helpful and gives you some ideas for enjoying the theme parks as grownups. Before you travel, I recommend familiarizing yourself with the Baby Care Centers. They were a lifesaver for me when my now grade school-age kids were younger. In each of the four theme parks, Baby Care Centers offer spacious changing tables, air-conditioned resting and feeding areas, and tot-sized toilets for a future trip when your little one is potty trained.

    Thanks for sending your question to planDisney, Marcus. Please don't hesitate to reach out again if there's anything else we can advise you on as you prepare for your enchanting escape. Best wishes for a summer full of magic and memories!
